Vaatelaastari Patch is a quick and easy way to patch your clothes. Vaatelaastari is finnish brand and the name simply means a garment patch. Sportswear is often in heavy use and small holes can sometimes appear. With a garment patch, you can patch up small holes without sewing or ironing, giving your favourite clothes a longer life. The patch works well on a wide range of textiles, but coated and water-repellent garments may not hold the patch.

The Vaatelaastari Patch sticks best to old textiles that have been washed several times. You can use it to patch shoes, bags, hats, gloves and jackets, for example. The best results regarding washing resistance have been obtained with synthetic fibres. Pay attention to careful attachment when patching clothes made of natural fibres.

  • Attach the exposed adhesive surface to the garment and gently pull out the backing paper while pressing on the Vaatelaastari

moldy and other unpleasant odors, brightens the colors, prevents fabrics from yellowing and softens the fabric making it feel lovely on the skin.

Wash the textile as usual. The stain removal stick is suitable for all textiles washable with water. Especially useful to remove grease stains.


A large part of our clothing contains synthetic materials. During washing, tiny plastic fibres break and enter rivers and oceans via the waste water and thus harm our environment. This is exactly where the Guppyfriend washing bag comes in. According to the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT, on average 86% fewer fibres of synthetic clothing break when washed with the washing bag. The fibres that do break collect in the corners of the washing bag after washing and can be easily removed and disposed of.


Use the Guppyfriend bag to collect microplastics whenever you wash synthetic materials such as polyester and polyamide. For example leggings, fleeces, layering and jackets. By using a wash bag you can also protect your clothes during washing.

How to use Guppyfriend?

  • Fill to about ⅔ full so that the textiles can easily move around in the bag
  • Add other (non-synthetic) garments or a second filled Guppyfriend to avoid imbalance
  • Wash at 40°c maximum
  • Use liquid and natural detergents without synthetics
  • Remove coarse dirt and pet hair before washing
  • Slide the zipper into the "garage" provided at the end of the zipper
